West Ham’s James Collins is not a consistent performer for the Football League Championship club as he has made less than 12 appearances for the club in this season and this could allow Wigan Athletic on making a move for the Welsh midfielder.

The head coach of Wigan Athletic, Uwe Rosler is fan of the playing style of Collins and his lack of playing time is a good motivation for him to make a move away from West Ham and go somewhere he can get more time on the playing fields.



Wigan Athletic managed to come into form at just the right stage in the season after a 4-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the league. This victory was a feather in the cap for manager Uwe Rosler, whose team have now edged into the playoffs position.

During the regime of Owen Coyle, Wigan only managed six wins from 18 matches. They have already managed to get nine victories from the 14 matches under Rosler. This win over Nottingham Forest was extremely crucial since it will be followed by the match against Manchester City in the FA Cup.



The Wigan Athletic fans who were expecting new signings during the mid season transfer window might not get their wish fulfilled as the newly appointed manager of the club, Uwe Rosler, is not in a mood to spend that much money in January. He might be making one or two loan signings, but, the permanent signings are not supposed to be made.


Wigan Athletic may sign Man Utd player Will Keane

Owen Coyle, the manager of Wigan Athletic has stated that his team has agreed a contract ‘in-principle’ to sign a striker. It is believed that they would get Will Keane of Manchester United on loan. Even though the Wigan manager did not specifically name Will Keane, yet it is believed by most people that it is the twenty year old forward who is on his way to Wigan.



Wigan were recently defeated 5-0 by Manchester city in the third round of the League cup. This was a rematch of the FA cup final of last season in which the Championship club managed a stunning upset over the former Premier league champions.

However, there was no upset this time around as city comfortably cruised to a victory. The win was in no doubt throughout the encounter because city were better than Wigan in every aspect. They will now play in the fourth round of the competition looking to go all the way.



Wigan Athletic recently appointed former Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle as a replacement for Roberto Martinez, who departed for Everton a few weeks ago. Immediately after taking over, Coyle has been looking to bring his own players into the club.

He has now revealed that he may sign as much as three strikers before the end of the transfer window. Wigan recently lost the services of Ivory Coast international Kone to former manager Roberto Martinez. Coyle will be looking to replace him with another striker, while also strengthening the team that has lost Franco di Santo.



Wigan manager Roberto Martinez, who has enjoyed a turbulent season with Wigan this season, has said that he will review his position at the club in the next few weeks. Martinez managed to help Wigan to win their first ever FA Cup title. However, he also was responsible for relegating Wigan to the Championship only a couple of days later.


Increasing success of sports betting

There is no question that sports betting has, along with playing at online casino sites, become the most popular form of gambling in the modern era. Of course sports fans have always enjoyed putting a bet on with a bookmaker, but the ease and convenience with which it is possible to do this nowadays has made it more widespread than ever.

Although people bet on all sports, there can be little disputing that football is the one that most people wager on – especially English Premier League football.



Wigan athletic have managed to escape the drop quite remarkably over the last couple of seasons. They have managed to do the same under the manager Roberto Martinez in the last few seasons. They are once again in relegation trouble this time around as well.

They are the 18th position after having played 25 matches in the Premier league. There are only 13 games remaining in the season, and Martinez has said that the players should be utilising the experience that they have gathered in the previous relegation struggles to achieve safety this season.



Wigan will be taking on Manchester United with a single attitude in mind, which will push them towards victory according to the Latics manager Roberto Martinez. Wigan achieved the famous 1-0 win over Manchester United last season. However, they will be facing a different United this time around because they are flying high in the table.
